Malaysian state mulls reward for 'good' Muslim husbands in polygamous marriages

Washington Post

By Associated Press

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — A conservative Malaysian state is considering rewarding "good" Muslim men who declare their polygamous status and are able to take good care of their multiple households.

Northeast Kelantan state councilor Wan Ubaidah Omar says many men keep their polygamous marriages a secret from their existing spouses, causing marital conflicts.

She said Wednesday the state is looking at providing incentives to recognize "good" polygamous husbands who can be role models for others.


Muslim men in mainly Muslim Malaysia can have up to four wives at one time but need consent from their existing spouses. Some husbands hold secret weddings elsewhere, causing problems when they return home with their additional wives.

Who will decide which marriage is good and which isn't? It's such a subjective thing that I think the state has done a good job deciding not to go ahead with the reward. Otherwise in the next ten years you would hear men marrying just for the sake of the reward, and many faking their "good" marital status.
